, republicans voted on the budget control act. they hope this passÉ. it was a law. as senator murray announced today, this year the senate will return to regular order in the budget resolution to the senate floor. the house republicans had to add a gimmick or to today ago that i understand, we all understand the tea party plays a big part in what goes on in the house and they need a gimmick or two to get things done over there. but spare the metaclass another knockdown drag out fight, we are going to proceed to work on this legislation intended out of here as quickly as we can. i went to give credit where credit is due and i think speaker boehner for his leadership in defusing a site over the debt ceiling debate. as i said before, not everything has to be a big fight. this proposal they have in the house is that worth fighting about. so again, i think the speaker for his work in this regard. the metaclass has been telling us they don't want another crisis in this showcase send the security they deserve. senator durbin. >> thank you, mr. leader. america is suffering from confrontation fatigue.
overtime. >>> australian open, men's final. murray against djokovic. first set, djokovic falls down as he reurns it. forehand gets over. gets up and back in position and approaches the net. beautiful. back hand, drop shot winner. but murray took the first set in the tie breaker and djokovic took control. he rallied to win the last three sets to capture an historic third consecutive australian open title, the first man in opener are a to accomplish that feat. six grand slams for down under. >>> annual pro bowl gets under way tonight for the pro bowl. fletcher, kerrigan, zander all representing -- alexander all representing the burgandy and gold, except for rg3. >> he needs to heal. >>> forecast so nice, let's look at it twice. starting off with an early mix. very, very light coating out there in places. should not be a big deal. may have delays for the school kids tomorrow morning. i'm not anticipating any cancellations. look at tuesday. scott is going to want to play hooky tuesday. 57 for a high with sunshine. on wednesday, 64 degrees. >> good timing for that. >> i can't play golf, can i?
and james taylor, they both confirmed those two artists did sing live. let's bring in john murray. do you think she was singing? >> i'm more surprised that kelly clarkson and james taylor actually sang live. it's an epic historic event. artists who air on the side of being perfect and caution in situations like this, you know, they want to give the best showing. people will be playing these tapes for years and years to on come. most artists do pre-record vocals and she released photos of her pre-recording. but most do just in case the elements prevent you from being at your best so i'm not surprised that she did lip sync if she confirms that she had. >> the marine band offering conflicting accounts. earlier they said she lip siyn synced. they said it was determined that a live performance was ill advised. each piece of music scheduled for performance in the inauguration is pre-recorded for use in case of freezing temperatures, equipment failure, et cetera. you say it's pretty standard. and then she pulled out her earpiece which suggests some sort of feedback. some are saying was she singi
in 2005. the man behind all these numbers, nbc's senior political editor, mark murray, joins me now. mark, this is fascinating stuff, well-timed is and fascinating. it feels like abortion, the conversation about abortions feels kind of like the conversation about gay rights, where the country is changing on a bedrock issue. am i overstating it? >> no, you're not, and one of the fascinate things about politics is politics can change. bill mcinturff, the republican pollster who co-founded this survey ended up saying, this is a profound change. and it probably goes to saying why during the democratic primary we heard so many references to abortion, women's rights, and you look at these numbers right now, and the poll for the first time, there is a majority saying that abortion should be legal. previously, when we asked this question, only with one exception, the majority said it should be illegal, either with or without exception. so a really profound change here. >> can we go inside the numbers a little bit? i think it's interesting. do you guys have a sense on where that change has come? o
me now mark murray. so mark, interesting numbers out there. there was another poll indicating i believe it's about 22% of republicans believe that there needs to be some kind of gun control legislation. so we know there's a divide here but what we don't know is the plan from the white house specifically. will they put the president out on the road? what is the next full throttle step here? >> well, the plan is to have the president on the road. first vice president biden hitting the road tomorrow, going to richmond, virginia, with new governor caine and making a political campaign on this. the question is, how much of one and will be able to see that in the days ahead and particularly after the state of the union address this coming up february 12th. but there is the campaign. but tamron, when you look at the different pieces of legislation that the obama white house wants, what democrats want, some of the things like the assault weapons ban that senator dianne feinstein unveiled today, advocates believe it's hardest thing to get passed with the senate and the senate democrats.
analyst mark murray. good morning, mark. >> good morning, alex. >> explain how the plan would work. >> most electoral votes across the country are apportioned by a win evener take all basis. for example, if a candidate wins the election in virginia, they get all the electoral votes. this was being considered in states like virginia, michigan, pennsylvania, the electoral votes would be apportioned by congressional district. and just to show you how much things would end up changing, due to all the gerrymandering with the concentration of a lot of democratic votes in urban areas to a handful of congressional districts, mitt romney would have had more electoral votes in the state of virginia, nine to barack obama's four, even though barack obama won the state by four percentage points. and 150,000 overall votes. >> that's the state of virginia and overall, you look at the numbers, romney would have gotten 273, obama, 262, if it had gone that way nationwide. that's an extraordinary change. but the question, this constitutional? >> it is. states are allowed to decide how their electoral
the senate. right now they have 45 seats. the democrats at 53. nbc news senior political editor mark murray joins me to talk more about this. mark, this puts a number of states in play now. we talk about west virginia after jay rockefeller's retirement and possibly south dakota, massachusetts as well. how possible is it for the gop to pick up six seats in 2014? >> it is possible. but it will be difficult. democrats are playing defense right now, thomas, given these retirements. but also just the terrain that the 2014 senate map will be on. there are democrats up for re-election in arkansas, alaska, louisiana. and now you end up having that open seat in west virginia. all of those four states haven't been hospitable territory for democrats in national elections, particularly presidential ones. but this is an eternity in politics. when november 2014 rolls around. there's a very long time. just two years ago no one thought democrats would be able to pick up senate seats at this point two years ago. at this point four years ago no one thought republicans would be having the very big november 20

everybody should watch first and foremost because of the unbelievable performances. bill murray is spectacular as fdr. he's almost unrecognizable as a comedian we've loved for decades. there's one little thing about this movie though. he was in a relationship with his distant cousin and that's what the movie kind of touches on. so it gets pretty crazy, and i was not prepared to see the great fdr in certain compromising positions. that's really throwing some people off. >> is it bill murray playing fdr, or is it a real fdr-like role? >> i think he's amazing. i think that he re-creates fdr in a time when daniel day-lewis is getting so many accolades for "lincoln." we should be talking about bill murray, as well. he's extraordinary. >> high praise. so what's it getting on the tomato meeter? >> well, i personally loved this movie because it took larger than live figures and made them very normal and accessible. critics aren't agreeing with me. it's 40% rotten right now. >> oh, that's not very good. >> i know, too shock i guess. >> who do you predict will be the best actor and best a
. >>> before the presidential election, we discussed business owners. murray energy joao robert murray told employees if they did not give money, their jobs would be in jeopardy. in midsummer he said the company would shut down the plant, the red bird west mine which employed 56 people because of the president's policies. murray is starting to hire at the mine, again. the company denies reopening a plant and will hire back 42 or 43 people for a drawdown that will take place over the next several years. so, what you should know for the week coming up. it is now illegal to unlock your smartphone if you purchased it after saturday. unlocking or cracking a phone is a process to use your phone on any cell network, not just the one to which it is contractually tied. they granted an exemption to the act to allow them to engage in the practice. wireless carriers could sue consumer who is purchase and unlock their phones. this is a copyright regime that is broken and dysfunctional. the resume of the president's choice to head up the security and exchange commission. she's a federal prosecutor with e
today just get through high school. the challenge that so many kids confront, and liz murray wrote, you know, a beautiful memoir, "breaking night," about her journey from homelessness to harvard, how are we going to create opportunities for kids whose families won't or can't take care of them who have been told over and over again you're broken because they're poor or their parents hate them or reject them because they're gay or lesbian. these kids feel so damaged that college feels like another planet to them. and we write in the book about the game changing things that cities and nonprofits are doing to create high schools that are connected to homeless youth centers. there's a great program here in the city that's part of or connected to the door which is a drop-in center for disconnected youth. it's in its 41st year, it's an amazing program. and it's called brim academy. and that school was started with this notion that there are young people who are feeling really marginalized and disenfranchised. can you get those kids to come into school if they're homeless or struggling? we at c
the deficit down. i've talked to leader reid. budget claire murray. we're going to do a budget this year, and it's going to have revenues in it. and our republican colleagues better get used to that. >> so this is still a fight between how much spending cuts and how much taxes. the president got his -- >> well, simpson 3w0-bowles sai let's get rid of the high tax rates. the president doesn't want that. you had $1 trillion in tax increases with obama care. new tax increases at the beginning of this month. and now they are calling for even more tax increases, and they are not calling to cut spending. they are calling for spending increases. so basically what they're saying is, they want americans to pay more so washington can spend more. that's not going to help the economy, and that is not going to close the gap and balance the budget. the reason we want to balance the budget is not to make the numbers add up. we think that's necessary for growth and opportunity. we think it's necessary to make sure that our kids don't get this debt that they won't be able to handle if we keep going down
. on domestic issues, it was simple. i was a great society liberal. then i read charles murray, "losing ground," and for someone who is wanted doctor, i am open to empirical evidence. it was a dallas -- it was a disaster. i began to change on domestic policy and i realize that, however good the intentions of american liberalism and it was destroying a whole sector of society and destroying the lives, the culture, the resolve, the character of the people it wanted to help. so that is how it happened. they moved on domestic affairs and i moved and i am where i am now. of course, that is a long way to say that i was young once.

of appearance and i have here senator murray. we will go back and forth and senator bald plan frank and murphy, mikulski, white house and warren, so i would now recognize senator murray. >> thank you very much mr. sherman for holding this important hearing. and it is i think especially important to know obviously the issue of newtown but this is an issue a lot of us have been working on for a long time, ourselves included and i think it is a great time to focus and i appreciate that and senator alexandre, we welcome you as the new ranking member position and look forward to working with you and all the new members it's great to have you on this committee and there is a lot of great talent here. i think that we will really be able to do some good things on this committee. succumb thank you very much and to both of the witnesses as well. i did want to go back to the senator harkin has mentioned several times that in the president's recent release ghana violance package she issued three provisions. one clarifying for medicaid managed care plan and one saying that it would be included in the final
of the senate. something interesting we are seeing is the new budget chair, patty murray putting a face to it. part of the problem with the democratic platform in terms of the budget, we took the backseat and waits. patty is putting a human face on it. you can't keep cutting, if you do, this is what's going to happen to the american population. >> it's less about a budget. one that is, in certain ways sort of saying -- >> defense. >> according to my understanding of the constitution, they have the fiscal responsibility -- >> primarily in the house. >> not correct. the constitution says clearly that the only thing the congress is supposed to do every year is to pass appropriations bills. those bills should be guided by a budget. >> that's right. >> i'm 61 years old. do you know how many times congress passed a budget in my lifetime? four. it's an f minus. if they got paid for performance -- it's your job. they are not following the constitution. >> right. >> it's an interesting point. one of the thing that is folks may not realize about the budget is that more than 50% of it is automatic. >> t
be very difficult. harry reid said it will be patry murray in charge of the budget to deal with these other issues. >> so the president -- one of the president's top priorities is global warming. and you're saying that's probably not going to pass through a democratic senate. what about gay marriage? what about gay marriage bills? what's the likelihood? this is another top priority for the president. the president has a democratic senate. what's the likelihood of the democratic senate, under the leader some of of harry reid, passing sweeping -- i'm just asking, you don't think so? >> there's a bill that promotes the constitutional right to gay marriage. that's not going anywhere, obviously. everybody's waiting for the supreme court. >> mark halperin, let me ask you the same thing, the president's top priorities that were laid out. we hear that republicans are going to be obstructionist. what is the likelihood of us getting sweeping global warmi i legislation or gay marriage legislation? >> i think i know where this is going. >> actually, you understand my point. the point i

? >> it was on interstate 69. it was the murray state in kentucky, the women's athletics. they were on their way, in a minivan, to an event, but they hit a patch of ice, and the minivan rolled over. they said there were about nine injuries. two were transported to the hospital. the injuries are believed to be nonlife threatening. and it looks like in spite of how disastrous this actually looks, very few injuries, they were transported, but this was due to hitting some ice on some of the interstates there. well, the storm system is expected to move fairly rapidly towards east, but right now, the critical zone is going to be in this tristate area, tennessee into north carolina, and georgia. this is what we're looking at, the worsening of the icing conditions now. i want to show you what happened in the past 12 to 24 hours. this coming out of utah, around provo. this from our i-reporter, lane russell. look at the video. and he says that in provo, at byu university, that they had ice, they had snow, but on one of the ramps there he said there was a layer of ice. they were trying to get across this,

murray, the chairman of the senate budget committee is saying, oh, trust us, we're going to pass a budget. chuck schumer this weekend says, trust us, we're going to pass a budget. they haven't passed a budget in the last four years. so this bill today moving out of the house will force the senate to act, which is something they have not done in the past four years. >> right. finally, congressman, for the most conservative republicans who say even a three-month extension to may 19th is wrong, are you trying to back them off of that ledge and say we need to speak with a unified voice and at least get this done even if it is a short term? >> yeah. look, i think the reason why jim jordan, the former chairman of the roc, the current chairman of the roc, the republican study committee that's the most conservative members of the republican chamber, they have all endorsed this because they realize that if you really want to fix the debt, if you really want to cut spending, you have got to do big things. it can't just be little cuts here and there. so they agree with the strategy here, which is re
they will put forward a budget proposal, chuck schumer and patty murray and others are saying there will be new revenue in it. talk to mitch mcconnell said it's settled based on the raising of rates from the fiscal cliff deal, so there are some real divisions. and monday seems like a long, long time ago already. >> it certainly does. >> joe? >> yeah, mike. >> pick up on sam stein's point about immigration. today is a red-letter day on that issue. two signal events. one in today's "wall street journal," jeb bush, former florida governor, calls for comprehensive immigration reform. that's what the president wants. that's what democrats are pushing for and what republicans are resisting. jeb bush, one of the most powerful voices in the party, said they should go the president's way on that. fix it in a big bill. second, sam stein's colleague, john war, points out on huff post that marco rubio, florida senator, is very smartly trying to change the vocabulary of this debate, detoxify the term amnesty which has allowed talk radio, conservatives to dismiss almost any move on immigration. he's saying w
at how people live, we just do live in two different countries. i think that charles murray's book last year was a very powerful way of laying that out. >> but this is a very peculiar problem that we face. we all talk about this. i think we are all along about it, even if you are not a hard- line social conservative. yet, what we do not see -- what we have not seen are the social dislocation costs of this. that is to say, when we started "the weekly standard" in 1995, the prognostic of peace that would make you laugh if you went back to look at it was by a criminologist and sociologists called "here come the super predators." the argument was we had created a generation of 17-year-old youth whose fathers had been in prison, who had never seen a strong family, and basically, they were on the way to creating a crime wave the likes of which we had never seen. that is one of the great humbling moments of my life as an editor. it is a wonderful piece. it was perfectly argued, and it made absolute sense at the time that we publish it, and it was so wildly wrong. it is not 18 years later. we h
